About

The exhibition Biographies of Modern Art provides an insight into the work of provenance research at the Brücke Museum. The focus of the presentation is not on the provenance of the artworks, but on the biographies of the former owners.

It introduces eight visionary personalities who have been significantly involved in supporting and promoting modern art in Germany. These friends, collectors and dealers of the Brücke artists include the art historian and dealer Victor Wallerstein, the Berlin economist and Pechstein collector Hans Heymann, the salonnière and translator Elsa Glaser and the art historian Rosa Schapire. The aim of the exhibition, co-curated by Ruth Ur, is to commemorate these extraordinary individuals and to honour their commitment to the artists of the Brücke and to German Modernism.
